Landscape images are often composed according to some sort of established method, such as the rule of thirds, the golden spiral, or some other rule. And while those rules exist because they can help you, certainly, they are not the only way to work. In fact, sometimes, composing by intuition and feel is the way to go, and this great video tutorial discusses why that can be such a good thing.
Coming to you from Alister Benn with Expressive Photography, this awesome video tutorial discusses composing landscape images by feel. A lot of us simply default to something like the rule of thirds, and while that can work, by not diving more deeply into the frame, we are missing out on creating more interesting images. If you look at the work of some of the best photographers, it does not always conform to some set compositional rule. A lot of the time, an image works for some reason that we simply cannot articulate, and if we do not give ourselves a chance to find those kinds of photos, we are missing out and likely creating rather formulaic shots. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
